SHOP NAME:  GREEN POT AND SHOVEL GARDEN

LOCATED AT: CONRINTHIAN HILLS, PASIG CITY (NEAR VALLE VERDE7)

This shop sells indoor and outdoor plants and offers good services to the customers.

The place is like a whole package because they also sell koi fish and herbs are available too.

“This charming garden in near Corinthian hills were so big it will take your breath away but the plants are well chosen, the staff extremely helpful, and the collection of gifts and gardeners’ accessories were delightful. This shop sells a new trend preserved roses from beauty and the beast for only 2000, to 3,000 pesos. I asked the owner of the shop to help me choose the best indoor plants for home and one of the list are;

  • Aloe vera

The gel of the aloe plant has a number of healing properties. Not only does it soothe skin burns and cuts, it can also help to monitor the air quality in your home. The plant can help clear the air of pollutants found in chemical cleaning products, and when the amount of harmful chemicals in the air becomes excessive, the plants’ leaves will display brown spots. Just an FYI: It grows best with lots of sun so you don’t have to sprinkle more water.

  • Bacularis

The plants are very drought tolerant and are watered about every other week during the growing season. During the winter months they are watered once a month. Water sparingly and not at all as temperatures dip in winter but can tolerate going months between watering.

Heat Tolerance: Excellent

  • Spider plant

One of the most common house plants, spider plants are decorative, easy to grow, and also make the NASA list of the best air-purifying plants. Spider plants are effective at fighting pollutants including benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and xylene. Which is good for indoor.

 

  • Cactus

It can be a tricky process caring for plants indoors. You may find that your plants do not get enough sunlight or you could simply forget to keep them sufficiently watered. This is where succulents and cacti become useful. Both varieties of plants are known for being hardy and easy to care for. They do not require as much water as most common plant varieties and can survive in difficult environments. You do not need a green thumb to care for succulents and cacti.

Fyi:it’s not safe for kids and avoid touching it and cactus must stay in one place because they tend to die fast.

  • Fern punk plant

This one is also a family of bacularis plant. will die if temperatures drop below 7°C with wet soil. However, it can survive near freezing temperatures if the soil is dry – but it is best to avoid freezing temperatures. If growing outdoors in frost free areas keep in a covered patio or under an area where plants do not receive winter rainfall.

 

  • Snake Plant

 

Snake plants don’t need much light or water to survive, so they’re an easy choice for any corner of your home. The plant absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen during the night (while most plants do so during the day), so add one to your bedroom for a clean-air boost.

  • Golden pothos

The golden pothos makes the NASA list for its ability to clear formaldehyde from the air. Try adding it to your kitchen or living room as a hanging plant, as the leaves will grow down in cascading vines. They grow easily in cool temperatures will low levels of sunlight.

  • Stargazer

Potted lilies prefer a constant daytime and nighttime temperature of 60 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit, although they will grow in daytime temperatures of up to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Placing their pots near heating or cooling vents may quicken or slow growth, resulting in stretched or stunted plants. The amount and intensity of light that a “Stargazer” lily receives will also affect its growth rate and habit. Indirect, bright sunlight for at least 6 hours per day will produce healthy, regular growth. This plant gives a good scent which is good for home as well.

 

  • Philodendron

heart-shaped philodendron is a popular plant choice for indoor areas, as they’re easy to care for and can grow decorative vines. Like the English ivy, they are particularly good at absorbing xylene. They can also last for many years when properly cared for. Grow with moderate water and some sunlight and they’ll be fine.

  • Boston fern

 

Boston ferns need a cool place with high humidity and indirect light. When you care for Boston fern plants indoors, it’s a good idea to provide additional humidity for them, especially in the winter. Most homes are rather dry, even more when heaters are running. For extra humidity care for Boston fern, try setting your fern’s pot on a tray of pebbles filled with water. You can also try lightly misting your fern once or twice a week to help it get the humidity it needs.

  • Warneck dracaena

This shrub, also known as Dracaena reflexa, can grow to be very tall. It’s another plant that can provide separation of different office areas. And it also combats pollutants commonly found in varnishes and oils. If your office space has hardwood floors, this shooting plant would be ideal.
